A CASUAL ENCOUNTER
Sure there were famous faces and names on stage at the Clinton Foundation Health Matters Conference (Bill Clinton among them), which was held at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa in Indian Wells in conjunction with the Humana Challenge golf tournament. Making an unannounced appearance were James Brolin and Barbra Streisand (who slipped in and out during a panel discussion). Impromptu posed photos of the couple are rare, but photographer Dane Andrews approached them outside and boldly asked for one.
MAKING A SPLASH
Riviera Palm Springs scored a spot among Trip Advisor’s “10 fantastic pools” — one of four U.S. pools to make the list (the others being the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev.; Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek in Florida; and Sheraton Maui Resort in Hawaii). The remaining top pools are in Thailand, Mexico, Greece, Indonesia, Fiji, and Costa Rica.
